Hey GMC. smile.gif

I came to think that it would be absolutely cool to have a sort of "F.A.Q" concerning the various techniques that the instructors cover in lessons. I remember in one of Pavel's alternate picking lessons, he said that it was common for players who were new to speedpicking to have tension in their hands and shoulders and that one should relax instead.
That helped me a bunch, and I was thinking that there are probably other people on GMC who just struggle with some technique because they are doing it the wrong way. So if the instructors (or equally qualified others) would write down, in a few words, what the common mistakes are concerning: Sweeping, Legato, Tapping etc. etc.
I know it would help me polish my techniques and get better results when I practice.

What do you guys think?

Great I idea, I just had to ask exactly how you do a pull-off. I figured the amp and gain was turn up so that was it. No, the instructor told me you actually "pull' on the string on the lift off to get the next tone.

I think this is the kind of stuff that should be in the Guitar Wiki.

This is the kind of stuff that is going into the guitar wiki, just theres not that many writers for it, so things are being left out

I also thought of that, I just forgot to post it. smile.gif
But nevertheless, I think it would be a good idea to know what to have in mind, when you're approaching a new technique, so that you don't get bad habits you'll have to get rid of later on. Sort of a preclusion. tongue.gif

There are lot's of things to mention, but there is however one most important thing - and that is to stay RELAXED and sit comfortably at all times smile.gif
